5 CFR 1310, Listing of OMB Circulars

AGENCY: Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President

ACTION: Notice updating the listing of OMB Circulars

SUMMARY: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provides policy guidance to agencies through the issuance of OMB circulars. OMB is updating the list of circulars that are in effect.

DATES: The updated list is effective upon publication.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The OMB Office of General Counsel, at (202) 395-5044.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In carrying out its responsibilities, the Office of Management and Budget issues policy guidance to Federal agencies to promote efficiency and uniformity in Government activities. This policy guidance is normally in the form of circulars.

In 1979, OMB published at 5 C.F.R. Part 1310 a list of OMB circulars that were in effect as of July 1, 1979. OMB is updating the list of circulars in Part 1310, to reflect the issuance of additional circulars and the rescission of former circulars during the intervening years. See, e.g., 56 FR 49824 (October 1, 1991) (notice regarding rescission of 11 circulars). As indicated in the updated list, there are 29 circulars in effect as of December 1, 1998. In addition, Part 1310 has been updated to reflect the fact that OMB no longer uses "Federal Management Circulars."
